Passage 11                                                                                                看点评

     Though your parents probably meant to have your name last a lifetime, remember that when they picked it they'd hardly met you, and the hopes and dreams they cared for when they chose it may not match yours.  If your name no longer seems to fit you, don't lose heart.  Film stars change their names, and with some determination, you can, too.
    
    If you wish to pick up a new name, you don't need to make the change official.  Under common law, all that is necessary is to start using the name of your choice.  Remember, though, that you must use it everywhere---even with your mother---for it to become your legal name.
    
   Getting friends and fellow workers to call you Leach instead of Lola may be harder than any paperwork involved, but you'll probably meet official resistance, too.  Be sure that no law prevents you from using the name you have chosen, unless you use it for the purpose of cheating.  If the gas company tells you that you cannot get your bill under a new name, they are wrong.  You don't have to show them any sort of court document.  You have a right to be called by whatever name you choose.
    
    By this time, you've probably realized that changing your name is more difficult than replacing your furniture of changing your hair color, though the effect can be unusually encouraging.  Don't care too much if you have to keep reminding others of your change of a new name---keep on, and your friends and lover will accept your new name.  Good luck!

    要准确把握全文的主旨大意,才能作对题2和题5

    本文的中心涉及作者对更改姓名一事的看法和态度。通读短文后,你应当有个基本印象。若你再注意到以下文字,你就更有把握了:

If your name no longer seems to fit you, don't lose heart.  Film stars change their names, and with some determination, you can, too.
Don't care too much if you have to keep reminding others of your change of a new name---keep on, and your friends and lover will accept your new name.  Good luck!
 

    作者写本文的目的是鼓励那些想改名的人(
encourage you if you want to change your name告诉这些人目前没有法律限制(you don't need to make the change official.  Under common law, all that is necessary is to start using the name of your choice. / You don't have to show them any sort of court document.  You have a right to be called by whatever name you choose.)提醒这些人克服可能遇到的困难(By this time, you've probably realized that changing your name is more difficult than replacing your furniture of changing your hair color, though the effect can be unusually encouraging.
因此题2的答案是B, 5的答案是B,题4的答案是D

    题4的选项C that changing your name is not as easy as rearranging your room)的说法与原文有出入:原文是 rearranging your furniture且“没有那末容易(is not as easy as ...)”的另外说法是“跟它一样难,或比它还难,而原文的说法是“比...还难”。
